When King Crimson entered the studio in July '74, the band had been touring extensively and releasing the albums "Larks' Tongues in Aspic" and "Starless & Bible Black" for two years. Jamie Muir (percussion) and David Cross (violin / Mellotron) had left the band and at the same time the band cemented their reputation as one of the strongest bands on the international rock scene.
With many former members and friends on sax, violin, oboe and clarinet, the band produced “Red”, the last Crimson studio album of the 70s and a true masterpiece of the decade, which numerous musicians and bands such as Steve Vai, Vernon Reid, Primus and influenced many more.
Steven Wilsons & Robert Fripps 5.1 Remix from 2009 received huge acclaim and the CD / DVD-Audio became a bestseller again. The album is the only one from the 40th Anniversary series that has not yet received a new stereo mix. Recently, Fripp and Wilson completed the stereo mix included in the box set “The Road to Red”.
